It looks like Kanye West got more than just a photo opp with President-elect Donald Trump on Tuesday. The rapper took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to show off a special takeaway he received: an autographed copy of Trump’s TIME ‘Person of the Year’ issue with message calling Kanye “a great friend” written on the cover.
Kanye caused a stir in the media on Tuesday after his highly publicized meeting with Trump. The two polarizing personalities said they met to talk about “life,” “multicultural issues” and more with Trump noting they’ve “been friends for a long time.” Unfortunately, Kanye didn’t find much support for the move on social media and his latest showing will likely only add a little more gas to the proverbial fire.
Wednesday morning’s tweet picks up where Kanye left off on Tuesday, when he made his return to social media to explain why he chose to meet with Trump. “I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future President if we truly want change,” he wrote in one message. Although he didn’t go into full detail, he did share that they used the time to discuss “bullying, supporting teachers, modernizing curriculums, and violence in Chicago.”
